Swimming Up
Swimming up toward the left branch of the Y gully. The snow was secure in this part of the couloir, but deep. April 1, 2006.

Nice picture man. How long did it take you to get in to the couloirs? Did u spend the night of just do a day trip?

Well, it took a while, probably 2-3 hours, to punch up the thing. We left the trailhead at 8 and topped out at 5:30. I guess you would call it a day trip, but we didn't get back until 3am due to some rigorous bushwhacking in the dark. Getting to the base of the couloir was not too bad, really. The snow is pretty firm on the trail, for now.
